“Hello, Los Angeles!
Rails Girls is happening again.
During this two day workshop we’ll dive into the magical world of Ruby & Ruby on Rails. YOU will build a web application with the support of a friendly coach.”
Expand your horizons.
Even if you do not have any programing desires:-) you will learn the basics through associations such as Rail Girls and be more effective as a visual designer.
Girls and guys should go and check out their web site with all of it’s wonderful informative materials and links!
I often get questions from students about what resources are available for networking with other Graphic Designers so that they can find jobs.
One of the all time best resources for any Graphic Designer, not just students, is AIGA. AIGA also has a chapter right here in Los Angeles that is an Amazing resource for anyone working or wanting to work in the field of Graphic Design:-).
Take another look at these common logos and once you see their secondary visuals you will not look at them the same way ever again!

Congratulations! You are officially registered in a GCC Graphic Design course.
A few suggestions:
1. Don’t miss a single class meeting, especially week 1 when there are so many students looking for empty seats. If you leave an empty space there is a very good possibility someone will take your place.
2. Stay in contact with your instructor throughout the entire length of the course. Show up the first day and make sure that you have a least two ways of contacting your instructor (email, telephone extension, Moodle, and or on campus mail box).
3. Know the expectations for the course. The course syllabus, Moodle (not a male poodle:-), it’s the online system that some instructors use to stay in touch with their students), or ask in class (best).
4. Feeling overwhelmed? Speak to your instructor. They have a wealth of experience, and they will have suggestions to get you on solid footing. If they don’t have the entire answer, they can put you in touch with resources on campus to facilitate a positive learning experience.
5. When is the Final Examinations? Know from day One when your Final Examination will be, http://secure.glendale.edu/schedules_ps/deptsched.asp?term=2143&type=&dept=ART.
